‘Houseboats’ and ‘The Pink One’ – two river paintings I’m showing at the Chelsea Art Society’s members’ exhibition this week. Paintings, prints, pastels and sculpture, all on a theme of Ebb and Flow in Chelsea. Tuesday 8th to Sunday 13th October at 340 Kings Road, London SW3 5UR.

Table in a Spring Window is one of several paintings I have in the Piers Feetham Gallery summer show, which runs until 3 August. A really lovely exhibition in a wonderful gallery, full of light and distinctly summery, with beautiful work by artists including Glyn Saunders, Caroline McAdam Clark, Roger Hardy, Susie Elliot and Christie Bird. Well worth a visit: 475 Fulham Road, London SW6.
‘Sewing’ is one of four paintings I’m showing at the 72nd annual Chelsea Art Society exhibition, which opens on Thursday 13th June. Five days of inspiring work from established artists and open submissions – and all completely free. (Free to view, that is – you’ll have to pay up if you want to take something home with you, but there will be loads of affordable paintings, prints and sculptures…)
Chelsea Old Town Hall, Kings Road, London SW3 5EE, Thursday 13th-Monday 17th June (for opening times see chelseaartsociety.org.uk).
Anemone and Hyacinth will be on show at the New English Art Club exhibition, 14-22 June. I’m so glad to be part of this exhibition again. It’s at the beautiful Mall Galleries (an easy walk from Charing Cross, Waterloo and the West End) and should include masses of interesting work by NEAC members and other artists. Come if you can!
Wrapping paintings for delivery after our exhibition at 54 The Gallery, Shepherd Market – a really lovely week in a beautiful gallery hidden away in the backstreets of Mayfair. Surrounded by cafés, and well away from the traffic, it felt more like continental Europe than central London, and the glorious weather gave the whole week a happy buzz. In some ways it felt like a holiday – but we worked hard too, selling well and making loads of new contacts. Thank you to everyone who came and saw our pictures – whether you bought, or just found the time to discuss our work with us, we really enjoyed seeing you.
I’m finishing frames for an exhibition with friends and fellow artists Penny Sandeman and Sarah Rivett-Carnac, which opens on 27th September at the Piers Feetham gallery in Fulham. It should be an interesting mix of work – Penny paints wonderful portraits and Sarah has been working on a new collection of dramatic abstracts. And it’s a lovely space to exhibit in: the three of us had a joint show there in May 2013, and we’re very happy to be back.
